It is the other way round. Obese people have inflammation and as asthma is an inflammatory issue, people who are fat have a higher risk of asthma.

It is sad to see almost 18% of children in America are obese and are at a huge risk of asthma because of their health. Obesity is the preceeding factor for many diseases like GERD, which, in turn, worsen asthma.
